POLICE PRESS RELEASE
KPSM expresses Gratitude to the community
KPSM, we would like to thank the general public for a safe conclusion of the 2018 Carnival season. Despite a few minor, expected, incidents throughout the season it was over all a dormant carnival season.
KPSM would also like to thank SCDF for their cooperation during the 2018 carnival season as we too are now looking forward to 50years of carnival in 2019. We would also like to remind the public that although carnival is over crime is still evident and one should always be vigilant and remember the 3 A’s of Crime Prevention:
- Be Aware of your surroundings at all times.
2. Be Alert to suspicious people and vehicles.
3. Avoid dangerous situations.
If you are leaving home and out for the evening:
– Turn on lights, radio or television so that it looks like some-one is at home.
– Lock all doors and windows well
– Don’t display items where they can be seen from the outside.
– Park your car in a well-lit area
– Avoid carrying a large amount of cash.
– Pay close attention to the people around
– When returning to your vehicle or your home, have your keys in your hands ready to open the door.
– Ask your neighbor to keep a watchful eye out for you.
– Do not drink and drive
